LitKicks has always been about more than just discussing literary news and books — we are proud to house a collection of articles, biographies and features that celebrate the history of literature and its characters. Each week we’ll select a few pieces from our ‘library’ and offer them up for your enjoyment.
On this week’s menu:
James Joyce: Since today is Bloomsday (the day Joyce’s Leopold Bloom roamed Dublin in Ulysses), it’s only fitting that we spend a little time reconnecting with James Joyce.
When Corso Dropped His BOMB: Poet Gregory Corso’s BOMB is a unique roiling celebratory mass. Not only are you treated to an original audio recording of the piece read by its author, we offer several photos and the background behind this ‘performance’.
American Sycamore by George Wallace: New York poet George Wallace offered up this short poem for our 24 Hour Poetry Party last July. While simple in tone and language, the deliberate pace of the poem radiates a mysterious intensity that seems appropriate for summer.
